The Palo Alto Oaks semi-professional baseball team has qualified to return to the Stan Musial World Series after winning the Western Regional Championship in southern California this past weekend! We are thrilled to participate, but the last minute travel expenses will be difficult to cover. If you are interested in supporting the Oaks' participation in the Stan Musial World Series this year, please contact Head Coach Steve Espinoza at or make your check payable to 'Palo Alto Oaks' and send it to the Palo Alto Oaks c/o 1860 Wagner Avenue, Mountain View, CA 94043. All of us with the Palo Alto Oaks organization appreciate your support.

Seems ironic that in Palo Alto the baseball team from this story is named after an oak tree and not a redwwod tree?

I grew up with Steve Espinosa and he was playing baseball all of the time. Not only was he a great natural player he knew the game better than most. It is no wonder that he has turned out to be a great coach. Congratulations to Steve and his team.
